The February half term marked the anniversary since the last Community Connectors in person event. It was a fun filled family fun day at the Broughton Pavilion with over 100 attendees. With Easter fast approaching and the governments road map of restriction easing published, it’s time to start looking ahead at making the most of 2021 and getting together in person one year on.
Volunteers and Committee members have certainly been missing all the camaraderie that comes with planning and running in person events. From the details of the budgeting and marketing, to who is going to Costco to buy the cake, there is always something to do. So we are excited to look ahead for the months to come.
Over the last 12 months, trails, free online art classes and video awards have kept the connectors busy, but looking ahead the wider community have asked for something much bigger. An outdoor party, when the time is right and safe to do so, to celebrate bringing people back together. Initial talks suggest a Picnic in the Park event with live entertainment, will be take place in the late summer and in accordance with any government guidelines.
The likes of the Parks Trust and 1Life, who run the areas two Pavilions, have been approached to help. As always the Connectors are always looking for volunteers to help with events, but if you’d like to just sit back and enjoy, then watch this space for further details coming soon.
